Located in the beautiful Fraser Valley just east of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is a fully accredited, public university that enrolls approximately 15,000 students per year. UFV has campuses and locations in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Hope and Agassiz. Drive any direction and you are sure to find adventure. In less than an hour, you can get to ski hills, the ocean, or the City of Vancouver. Or drive five minutes to visit the USA.  Even during the winter months, the Fraser Valley remains green, averaging only a few days of snow each year. You can enjoy nature all year-round, choosing from a range of fun activities, including hiking, swimming, biking, rafting, golfing, fishing, snowboarding, skiing, and more.  Canada's education system ranks among the best in the world, and Canadian degrees are recognized internationally. You can study at a lower cost than in many other western countries. UFV is recognized nationally for student success, an excellent learning environment, creative integration of programming, and our work with local communities. As a teaching-oriented university, UFV not only provides you with quality instruction, but with engaging learning opportunities that ensure you are job-ready and equipped to make an impact when you graduate. UFV is large enough to offer variety, and yet small class sizes allow you to get to know your instructors and learn in a hands-on environment. We offer more than 100 programs, including two master’s degrees, 19 bachelor’s degrees, majors, minors, and extended minors in more than 30 subject areas, and more than a dozen trades and technology programs.
